Ghanaian Club administrator cum player Agent Abdul Hay Yartey, has endorsed mass exodus of Ghanaian players insisting, it is good for the football industry.
“When you have the likes of Atsu, Wakaso, Toku, name them all stay in Ghana you have a very strong league. But again I always say if you have a quality young talent at a very young age from 17 going to 18 it is the best for the player, for yourself and the country for the player to leave the shores of Ghana to continue his career, because we don’t have the needed facility or the idea to groom them into better players.” He tells Starr Sports.
Player exodus has been highly spoken against by many who believe it deprives the Ghana Premier League of Quality players. But Hay Yartey who is the President of division two side Cheetah FC, is credited for discovering Newcastle and Black star player Christian Atsu and over 60 players for the international market, says it’s always in the right direction for young Ghanaian players to leave the shores of Ghana to continue their career outside the country.
“The system is not favorable for their development, the probability that a very good young talent will come out shinning in Ghana here is difficult. I don’t want to mention names but there have been fantastic players that have come out, gone through the GPL and they’ve become wasted.
”All of them can’t go out as well but it is good if they do, it’s the best to help the player, help your team because you are going to benefit financially and help the country because these players will be called into the National team.
”Samuel Owusu went out from Vision and he is playing for the Black Stars. When Atsu and co pass out from the Black Stars they are going to replace him.”He added
